Education curriculum framework gets nod

Cabinet has approved the draft framework on the education curriculum, paving way for the implementation of major changes in the primary and secondary education system in line with modern trends. Primary and Secondary Education Minister Dr Lazarus Dokora said at a Press conference yesterday that following the endorsement, they would start by producing syllabi restructuring Grade Seven and Ordinary Level subjects. Phase one of the implementation of such changes will begin next year.

Minister Dokora said the Zero Draft Curriculum Framework was presented to Cabinet on September 22, 2015 and was endorsed on the same day. He also said an audit would be undertaken on the readiness of the schools’ infrastructure to implement the new education system. – The Herald.
